Portraits 14 – 16 / 29: Amanda, Jed & Eleanor

Posted on: Thursday, May 7, 2015

Last month, I drove down to visit my sister Amanda, her husband, Jed, and their daughter, Eleanor, at their new house in Burbank. Buckwheat came, too. He was my co-pilot. Back in January, I helped Amanda and Jed move into the house, so it was exciting to see the progress they’ve made since then–they’re painting and unpacking and redoing the backyard. They’re making the house their home.

During my visit we took portraits outside the house and at the neighborhood park. These days Eleanor is on the move, so much of the portrait taking involved me chasing Eleanor around with my camera, hoping that some of her quicker moments of cuteness turned out.

Mostly, I just enjoyed spending time with these three. It’s been so much fun to watch Eleanor grow from the tiny, sleepy baby I first met, to the fast walking and funny toddler she’s become. Now that E’s a toddler, she can do all sorts of new and cute things: she can point at her bully button (and ears and nose), she gives her mom and dad hugs and knows their names, she says “no” (even though sometimes I think she means “yes”) and signs things like “dog” and “milk” and “more”; towards the end of the weekend she even started making a sound akin to my name.

Eleanor also plays a pretty good game of chase (much to poor Buckwheat’s surprise) and loves to ham it up for smiles and laughs. She’s sweet, playful, inquisitive, and silly. I feel so lucky to be Eleanor’s aunt. And watching Amanda and Jed as parents has been a huge gift. I’m looking forward many more weekends with Amanda, Jed and Eleanor at their lovely little home in Burbank.

Here are some of my favorites from our weekend in April:
